kill our way out of it. but the women's vote is affected by the richard mourdock controversy or could be affected, we should say. governor romney asked about this, ignored the question on the stump. this is ace race that had been re, very tight already. richard mourdock, you know, memberbly was the tea party supported deeply conservative candidate in indiana who defeated dick lugar who failed to campaign, didn't even have a home address. that was a rough primary. and now you've got mourdock on the ropes but it's playing into the national race as well. >> it sure is, because the republican party and various candidates keep tripping themselves up on this very emotional issue of abortion. and i have to say, i thought what mourdock said was beyond stupid. it was actually cruel to think. if you think it's god's will that the baby's created as the pregnancy results from rape you have to think it was god's will you be raped and that's not my -- it's not a theological program, that's not my idea of religion. i do have to say it underscores the real intellectual problem that republican party a
